A typhoon devastated Southeast Asia. Thousands of people already died. Millions are homeless without food or clean drinking water.

The typhoon brought strong winds and heavy rains which caused flooding. There is a video which was taken in China. It shows a big dredger. It is carried away by water when it hits a bridge and stops.

This typhoon is the strongest typhoon to hit China this year.

Difficult words: typhoon (tropical storm), devastating (destroying), dredger (machine for getting sand from the ground).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
